To successfully complete this procedure, you should be logged on to the server minimally as a local administrator and a domain user who has membership in at least the RTCUniversalReadOnlyAdmin group.

The first step of the Lync Server Deployment Wizard is to install the Local Configuration store. The Local Configuration store is SQL Server Express, which installs a local database that will retain a read-only copy of the Central Management store. The Central Management store is added to the existing SQL Server database installed on the Standard Edition server SQL Server Express-based database.

If this is the first time that you have run Microsoft Lync Server 2010 setup on this server, you will be prompted for a drive and path to install Lync Server 2010. If your organization requires that you locate Internet Information Services (IIS) and all Web Services on a drive other than the system drive, you can change the installation location path for the Lync Server files in the Setup dialog box. If you install the Setup files to this path, including OCSCore.msi, the rest of the Lync Server 2010 files will be deployed to this drive as well.

To install the Local Configuration store

  1. From the installation media, browse to \setup\amd64\Setup.exe, and then click OK.

  2. If you are prompted to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 distributable, click Yes.

  3. On the Lync Server 2010 Installation Location page, click OK.

  4. On the End User License Agreement page, review the license terms, select I accept the terms in the license agreement, and then click OK. This step is required before you can continue.

  5. On the Deployment Wizard page, click Install or Update Lync Server System.

  6. On the Lync Server 2010 page, next to Step1: Install Local Configuration Store, click Run.

  7. On the Local Server Configuration page, ensure that the Retrieve configuration automatically from the Central Management Store option is selected, and then click Next.

  8. When the local server configuration installation is complete, click Finish.
